    Question How to see the calls history from a contact?

    Hello,

    I have a nexus 4 and I really have some troubles with how to check the calls history from a contact.

    To explain more, here is an example:
    1. I receive a call from "contact A"
    2. I receive 30 calls from other people during this day
    3. Then I receive another call from my "contact A"


    I would now find all the calls from my contact A.
    The logic would be that somewhere, I click on a contact and get all the call logs for him...
    But when I do that from the history calls interface, I only get the last call, not all the calls from my "contact A".

    Does somebody know how I could get the feature I had in my previous phone (a samsung gio with android 2.3) ?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    If you open the Phone app and then tap the clock at the top you get your call history. Then tap the contact that you wish to view. This works for me hope it does for you too

    Nope, that is the problem. It only show the last call of my "contact A". Not all of them.

    Unless if I have multiple calls with my contact without interruption by another contact. In this case it appears like it should be...

    When your there click on the middle section of the contact (name and number) a list should appear.

    The original poster is correct; the list is truncated, often to just the single entry for the call which was tapped.

    For example, if I look in the history list, I see several calls from my wife and others from my son. If I tap one of these, I typically see only the info for that one call. The ONLY time I see a list of calls is when there was more than one call incoming or outgoing from/to that same number on the same day.

    So, let's say I spoke with my wife on the 15th, the 13th, three times on the 12th, and once again on the 10th. When I tap the entry for the 15th in the call history, that is the only call in the list. Same when I tap the 13th or the 10th. However when I tap any one of the calls from the 12th, the list shows all three calls from that day.

    Look at Smart Notify, there you have all number history (SMS+calls) that you need https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ma.smartnotify
